"SIPBA is an amazing organization that gives tirelessly to their members and to the community, through carefully planned prescribed burns aiding in needed forest management. Their equipment and expertise are put to good use in helping to restore degraded forest ecosystems and prairies. It is a pleasure to work with them."
"Burning helped open up our forest floor allowing more wildflower species to come back and helped knock back invasive species like multiflora rose and Japanese Honeysuckle. Burning can help restore unique communities like our sandstone glade. Due the fire suppression, it was overrun with shrubbery and low value trees and disappearing with species that did not belong. It' amazing to see the changes burning creates with Mother Nature."
